New York Opera in HD on Moscow Cinema Screens
Anna Netrebko as Anna Boleyn

This theatrical season the 35mm cinema shows live translations from the New York Metropolitan Opera on a big screen. Organizers are amazed by sold outs for every performance.

          The Metropolitan Opera has been holding such translations for six seasons all around the world. Now this unique event comes to Russia.

      The first translation took place on October 15. It was a much-talked-of premiere - "Anna Bolena" with Russian great opera singer Anna Netrebko in the main role. Then, on October 29, Moscow viewers were able to see "Don Giovanni" with music by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and with an Italian libretto by Lorenzo Da Ponte.

      The translation's organizers did not expect any commercial success from this event in Moscow and considered it as only a cultural project. Great was their surprise when they saw that there weren't any vacant seats in the big 35mm cinema's showing hall. Moreover, the audience generally consisted of young people. 

      At the same time, the organizers opened a new function - showing opera performances online through the Internet after buying of a special e-ticket.

      The nearest translation will be held on December 10 - a grand opera Faust in five acts by Charles Gounod to a French libretto by Jules Barbier and Michel Carré. Other opera translations planned in this season are: Ernani by Giuseppe Verdi to an Italian libretto by Francesco Maria Piave, based on the play Hernani by Victor Hugo (February 25), Manon, a comic opera by Jules Massenet (April 7) and the legendary Traviata by Giuseppe Verdi (April 14).

      You can buy the tickets in the 35mm cinema's tickets offices and by the phone put on the cinema's official website (English version is available).
